Most films receiving acclaim these days do so purely because they
differ from the usual junk being put out by Hollywood. But a lot of
these movies aren't really all that enjoyable either. I can't remember
the last time I went to a movie and just had a purely enjoyable time.
I feel robbed most days when I leave the theater, or pop a rental
out of the DVD player. Really, if films like Amores Perros and Sexy
Beast are all that people can recommend, moviegoers everywhere
are best advised to read a good book.
